Missoma’s new collab will delight specs wearers

Calling all sunglasses and glasses wearers/fanatics. Cult jewellery brand Missoma, beloved by celebrities and royals alike, is launched a collaboration with Le Specs, and it couldn't be cooler.

Not much has been revealed yet, but we do know the collection of sunglasses 'will celebrate self-expression in all its shades with designs inspired by the 70s and 90s to suit every face'.

It will include iconic shapes Le Specs fans have come to love, reimagined with Missoma’s jewellery and golden elements, such as embellished chains. The inspiration from the line came after both brands regularly saw their customers wearing Missoma and Le Specs pieces simultaneously.

From the first campaign shot we've seen, we can at least expect rectangular tortoiseshell sunglasses and a simple gold chain strap. The price range will be £110-£130.

The slightly bad news is you'll have to wait until April to shop the Missoma x Le Specs pieces, but I think we can all agree it'll be worth the wait. Before you go, make sure to check out our Missoma vouchers for the latest discounts.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
